You need to tell us a little more before anybody could recomend upgrades.

How fast is the processor?
How much memory?
How large a hard disk?
what graphics card?
what motherboard?

what do you use/want to use the pc for?

Download Aida 32 click here get it to benchmark your system and post more info on the hardware. With the limited system info posted so far any upgrade advice is likely to be very vague.

fattiger, it will be better to start a new thread for you PC, so that no one will get confused.

Make your title *PC Upgrade* and copy /paste the above information into the box. Regards.J.

Looking at the spec that Ravin kindly gave us the link for, i think that you should consider purchasing a dedicated graphics card and sound card. Nothing too flashy is needed, but by doing this you will leave the RAM on the MOBO free for software application rather than having to cope with sound and graohics production. You will see a definate all round improvement.

By the way, What do you use the computer for mainly? this might influence the upgrade undertaken.

SpyMan²°°­­³ is right about the sound and graphics cards, they are the most obvious updates. Don't forget you may need to get a PCI card, there is no reference to an AGP slot on the spec page. click here
or click here for a couple of options. Do choose any sound card carefully as the cheaper ones use system ram as memory, so will be a negligible improvement.
